Wal-mart Is Killing America

I never cared much for Wal-Mart before. But since they drove all of the rest of the retail business out of my immediate area, I would go there to pick up odd and end things as I needed them. This latest move that they made at their Sam's club stores where they laid off 10,000 people was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. This is a company that could easily afford to pay their people $20 an hour, give them free medical benefits, not have to raise their prices a dime, and still make their umpteen BILLION dollar profits each year. Instead they pay their people minimum wage, show them where to get welfare, and now lay them off ??? I just can't imagine how they are saving money by doing this. They have hired an outside company to provide the people to serve the samples of food in their Sam's club stores. I cant see how they could be getting away any cheaper. There are many, many other things they have done including the devastation of small towns throughout rural America. They have destroyed them by choking out all of the Mom and Pop stores and turning main streets into wastelands lined with vacant stores. They were once a proud "Made in America " store. Now almost 90% of what they sell is made in China. Yes, I am DONE with Wal-Mart !!

Agreed, I am done with WalMart and Sam's club. I had a membership with Sam's club and the last time I was there the lady had the NERVE to charge a membership re-newal with out even asking me ... how arrogent

I have met several people that have never been in a Wal-Mart. I wish that I never did. I have adjusted well to finding what I need in other stores. I hope that more people catch on do the same. I applaud you and the others. Keep it up and spread the word !!!!!!!
